Cannabidiol (CBD) is a naturally occurring compound found inside of cannabis, a plant with a rich history as a medicine going back thousands of years. Today the potential therapeutic benefits of CBD are being tested and confirmed by scientists and doctors around the world. A safe, non-addictive substance, CBD is one of more than a hundred “phytocannabinoids,” which are unique to cannabis and endow the plant with its robust therapeutic profile.
CBD can be administered a different number of ways and can often come down to consumer choice as to the best way to use:

  • CBD Oil Tinctures: taken under the tongue and held for several minutes for max absorption. Our favorite CBD oil Kentucky Stag™ is typically enjoyed this way.
  • CBD Smoke: smokable hemp flower and pre-rolls that can be ignited and inhaled.
  • Creams and Salves: Topical ointments that are known to help many consumers with symptoms of pain & skin conditions. AppalachiCanna™ Salve is a high-quality hemp salve with 800mg CBD.
  • Bath & Body products: CBD is delivered to your skin through a number of different products, including: Hand Sanitizers, Soap, Bath Bombs, lotions and creams.
  • Edibles: Food made with CBD oil. While the FDA has yet to approve CBD in commercial food products, you can still cook and add CBD to your own recipes.
  • CBD Pet Products: CBD oils, sprays, roll ons, and treats for pets. Consumers report that pet products help them with separation anxiety and depression.
  • CBD Paste: Highly concentrated full extract paste that can be used orally as well as topically; fast acting.
  • CBD Vape: a wax or oil that creates an Inhalable vapor. Vapable CBD is used by many for anxiety. Vapable CBD is the fastest method of absorption, although not the longest acting.
The hemp used in AppalachiCanna's products is produced by a cooperative of craft farmers from Eastern Kentucky. Our hemp is grown on small family farms by farmers with generations of expertise. The hemp is then harvested and barn-cured to produce a high-quality commodity.

Our hemp is certified organic, grown using non-chemical fertilizer (chicken litter). Our hemp is lab tested to ensure potency and THC compliance with the Farm Bill. By controlling where our hemp is grown, we're able to produce high quality products while maintaining consistency.
Unlike it's relative, THC, CBD does not make a person feel “high” or intoxicated. That’s because CBD and THC act in different ways on different receptors in the brain and body.

CBD can actually lessen or neutralize the psychoactive effects of THC, depending on how much of each compound is consumed. Many people want the health benefits of cannabis without the high – or with less of a high.

The fact that CBD is therapeutically potent as well as non-intoxicating, and easy to take as a CBD oil, makes it an appealing treatment option for those who are cautious about trying cannabis for the first time.
The endogenous cannabinoid system, named after the plant that led to its discovery, is perhaps the most important physiologic system involved in establishing and maintaining human health.

Endocannabinoids and their receptors are found throughout the body: in the brain, organs, connective tissues, glands, and immune cells. In each tissue, the cannabinoid system performs different tasks, but the goal is always the same: homeostasis, the maintenance of a stable internal environment despite fluctuations in the external environment.

Although both hemp and marijuana are derived from the same plant species called Cannabis, they are 2 very distinct plants that differ in genetics, cultivation, and chemical process.

Hemp is cultivated with low levels of THC, defined as .3% or less, and is grown for many different uses, including: CBD extracts, rope, food, etc. Hemp has no psychoactive properties.

Marijuana is cultivated for it's psychoactive properties and can often reach levels of THC greater than 20%.
